Thursday night had the NCAA Basketball tournament on CBS and the results were way below CBS' usual Thursday numbers as well as last year's tournament. Having so many games on so many networks has completely diluted this for CBS and they should really consider letting it fully be a cable offering, at least in the early rounds. Several competing shows were up without the CBS lineup including The Big Bang Theory. On NBC, Community was up half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. The jury's still out on this one for next year. At 8:30pm, Parks and Recreation was up four tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Finally at 10pm, Parenthood was up three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo

On ABC, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland was up three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Grey's Anatomy followed and was up seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Finally, Scandal dominated the 10pm hour and was up nine tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Lastly on FOX, Hell's Kitchen was down two tenths in viewers and the demo from last week's premiere. At 9pm, American Idol was down half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo for a series low. It nearly dipped below a 2.0 demo but was adjusted up in finals so it hasn't hit that low point yet. Still, it's just getting uglier. There's no reason Idol should have been down with CBS well below normal and NBC in repeats.
